Solved!

HP Omen startup menu at boot

HP Recommended
HP Omen 15-5011TX
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I recently had a battery problem with my notebook, now fixed, but in the process of accessing the boot up options menu a few times, it now display EVERY time the PC starts.  The menu I am talking about is the one which says:

 

Startup menu

F1  System Information

F2 System diagnostics

F7 HP sparekey recovery

F9 Boot menu options

F10 BIOS setup

F11 System recovery

Enter - continue startup

For more information, please go to www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup

 

When I press enter the notebook starts normally and everything works fine.  However, this menu comes up every time the PC is started and does not time out.  Usually it is a problem getting to this menu (because the notebook starts so fast on the SSD), but I have the opposite problem - now it is all working fine I don't want the menu to come up.  I've been to the HP startup website and googled and searched and looked for an option to turn off the menu, but I can't find anything. 

Can you please tell me how I can hide the display of this menu each time the PC starts?

Thanks.

You were right, it worked.  I didn't think I needed a BIOS upgrade as I'd upgraded to F.23 about 2 weeks ago, but there was an F.23 rev A on the HP support downloads, and when I upgraded all now works fine.  I searched and searched and couldn't find an option anywhere to remove the startup menu.  Seems right that it should be set somewhere in the BIOS (actually UEFI) but I couldn't find an option anywhere.  Thanks for the tip.

See the replies above.  Update or re-update the BIOS even if you are on the latest version.  Worked for me and several others.

Your Escape key is having a permanent activation. Hit gently to deactivate it and the problem will be solved.
